Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

Oops I did it again - ANOTHER Rite Aid trip for cheap Tide and Aveeno, plus free vitamins!
There's another new Nature Made deal using a Rite Aid Facebook coupon that came out today. A reminder I throw up here every once in awhile: Rite Aid's official coupon policy is to only allow one coupon on BOGO free items. However, no Rite Aid I have ever been to has enforced this stupid ass policy. As long as you're not violating the terms of the coupon itself, they don't care. But that doesn't mean that there isn't a Rite Aid somewhere out there that does enforce this policy. I'm sure there are. If this happens, just refuse to purchase the items and walk away. That'll show em! Probably not. Just go to another Rite Aid. Unless you're in BumFuck, Iowa, this shouldn't be a problem.
ANYWHO, I also did the P&G deal again. The Tide Boost Stain Release Packs are included in the deal, AND there's a high-value $3/1 coupon for them in this week's P&G Insert! W00T! I also did the Aveeno deal again since the limit is 2 for both the weekly and the monthly rewards. It might actually be higher since neither deal is showing up on my receipt as having reached its limit yet. But I doubt I'd do it again. They're not free, after all, just cheap. I have plenty of face wash, believe me!
